After the blog discussion, [my therapist and I] talked about some short stories I submitted for publication, and other topics writing related. He was grinning through our entire conversation and when we paused he laughed a bit and said, “You are not the same person I was talking with a few minutes ago. Once we started talking about blogging and writing your entire demeanor changed. I can’t remember the last time you were so animated.” We both agreed it was time I start writing more and not just for my blog.
In just the few days since that post I have had a major breakthrough – I’ve sold my first short story. What a wonderful way to start the week. Thank you to all of you who’ve been so supportive. This is the start of a new beginning.
